In a dark, dark wood there sat three dark, dark men;
And the dark, dark men were wearing dark, dark googles;
But the dark, dark googles had NO dark, dark screens;
Because on the bright, bright screens there were…… drones!
Finally, FPV racing comes to the FPVblog. After owning a Gemini for almost a year I finally got to use it as a FPV racer. With all my experience in filming I felt ready to take on a new challenge as a race pilot. And so I joined a local event named “Crash pilots hitting the trees”, literally.
For me the marked track turned out to be an obstacle course instead of a race lap. Crashing and the constant adrenaline rush is part of the fun and almost inevitable given the narrow trees. Luckily, only propellors were damaged and all the drones survived the dark dark wood, ready for more races another day. It was great fun. Thanks to the organizers!

Be carefull. Once i almost lost my drone. It’s better to do it somewhere out of forest.
Haha flying in a forest is so dangerous, yet adds so much to the risk and fun that it’s hard to resist! I know the feeling all too well.
This is so epic! I had a VR headset and wanted to put it to serious use. So I rented a drone off Fat Lama and boy did I have a mental time. I didn’t quite do it in a forest, but in open air it’s just as mad. Gotta try it out folks…
It’s so much fun to fly in the forest. Especially when I fly from the ground over the trees.
